Grab Bag is the collection of five songs where the piano takes the lead vocal, where chords and harmonics have equal or bigger weight than the melodic lines. As in "The Crowd", each instrument has its particular line, more or less remote from the main theme, and as a whole, the global set shows more than the sum of its parts. Different open chords, adding up, give depth to these imperfect "homemade" recordings. You can hear open-tuned acoustic guitars played from the couch,...

The Four Seasons (Italian: Le quattro stagioni ) is a set of four violin concertos by Antonio Vivaldi. Composed in 1723, The Four Seasons is Vivaldi's best-known work, and is among the most popular pieces of Baroque music. The texture of each concerto is varied, each resembling its respective season. For example, "Winter" is peppered with silvery pizzicato notes from the high strings, calling to mind icy rain, whereas "Summer" evokes a thunderstorm in its final movement,...

From Budabeats : Budabeats has had the honour to welcome Tom Caruana, the widely respectable great artist, releasing his EP at label. He has several releases at Breakin' Bread, one of the best English labels. Caruana's works were born in freestyle we also prefer. So it is not surprising to find a rich variety in his repertoir: dubstep (Cause for celebration), hip hop (Tea of sea), break-hop (Keeping it me), funky break (Get it off your chest), dub (Never seen before) and funny-sampling tracks....

Originally issued on the Harvest label in 1973, this is a wonderful stream of trippy Heavy Swedish prog with an intensely groovy jazz-rock & fuzz oriented approach that comes close to Frank Zappa circa “Hot rats”, with some spacey-freaked-out atmospheres and an underlying Canterbury feel.   The...

Attila is a half an hour of folk-rock charged with delta wonk. Short Hand plays like a wild man on these twelve tracks. The instrumentation is raw, most striking his voice, which he wields like a voodoo stick to fling swamp mud at a rock 'n' roll sky. Thematically, the song cycle is just as solid and forceful, taking up subjects like self-assurance and existential fearlessness and evoking giants of history like Attila the Hun and Muhammad Ali that reverberate even through the "softer"...

After the self-release in late 2011, the French producer ProleteR drops his "Curses From Past Times" for Dusted Wax Kingdom with 4 extra bonus tracks. The beat tape features heavy-weight boom bap beats cooked with sprightly chanson samples.

Did somebody order a pizza? Or, does someone need their sinks...unclogged? Whatever. The plot doesn't really matter. I'm here. Let's bump silicone in soft focus. Grunts. Yeahs. Cue the porn music. Here we have the first entry in the wildly popular, wildly erotic "Wakka Chikka Wakka Chikka" series, presented by the venerable Comfort Stand Recordings . It's a simple concept - have a bunch of international recording artists render their own version of the barely noticeable but totally...

A classic. The sine qua non of Ryan's albums. Where promise met execution head on. Heartbreaker is a near perfect record, the kind that never gets dated, with songs that slowly work themselves into the our subconscious musical heritage. It's also our best seller ever. Upon its release in 2000, it was IMMEDIATELY apparent that Ryan had taken a momentous leap forward with his songwriting and songcraft, abilities that had been merely hinted at in his days with Whiskeytown . For such a fully...

Any of the artists that form The Spanish Donkey (Jamie Saft, Joe Morris, Mike Pride) could create dictionaries of superlatives with praise their work has garnered.  But as a cohesive unit, they surge forward into a new thesaurus, as a dream trampling through the woods on the edges of evening.  Joe Morris’ melodic improv guitar lines sketching out space where Jamie Saft’s keyboards color in chromatic aberration nudged and prodded by Mike Pride’s outside of time drumming.  Three artists...

The Cherry Blossom Clinic is so excited to welcome Ty Segall back to the WFMU airwaves! Ty played stripped-down versions of his songs - which included cuts from his amazing new album for Drag City "Goodbye Bread" - as well as some of his new classics. Ty and his band will be touring the US all summer long, but listen to Terre T reveal a different side of Ty Segall.  - DJ Terre

Fresh from their appearance at WFMU Fest, Lafayette, Indiana's finest have a packed touring schedule and killer new release on In the Red Records, who might describe them best: "a band who ushers in a vile and squalid new disposition to ugly art punk and carves out a black hole of pestilence that will delight its sufferers to no end. If one can swim through the murky grime long enough to let one's frazzled senses adjust, it's clear how effectively TV Ghost incorporates the licentious...

An amazing slice of unintentional avant-garde, minimalism before minimalism, and a kind of motorik version of light orchestral music.A bizarre audio course for fluency in typing, this recording, which comes from the first decades of the 20th century, consists principally of what can only be described as an unrelenting click track of various tempi, over which an orchestral ensemble plays rigid and tightly locked in versions of popular classical music, occasionally interjected by a tersely voiced...

Ragtime’s upbeat style is perfect as a happy and inspiring backdrop for playtime! This collection focuses on ragtime, an American music style from more than 100 years ago, a long time before the invention of CDs and iPods. Back then, sound was recorded into things like wax, resin, paper and metal. The paper recordings were played by machine instruments. The most popular was called a player piano, and most songs here are recorded from player pianos. The selections in this release were recorded...
